Actor Ren Osugi has passed away from sudden heart failure.
Those that play Final Fantasy XIV will know Osugi-san as the Dad, from Dad of Light. A Japanese blog that was developed into a series on Netflix and follows the story of a son that tries to get closer to his father by playing Final Fantasy XIV with him, without his father knowing that the character helping him in-game is his son.
Dad of Light Director Kiyoshi Yamamoto logged in the Indy Jones character earlier today so that players could pay their respects.
「光のお父さん」で作ったIndy Jonesで追悼ログインしています。大杉さんのご葬儀はお身内だけで行われるそうなので…こんなお悔やみをしても自己満足でしかないですが…。しばらく放置しておきますので、同じ気持ちの方はお越しください。場所は…わかりますよね。 pic.twitter.com/6RHAffnxo5
